White Sands National Monument

February 2007

White Sands is in the midst of a basin with natural gypsum deposits. It is a small park close to the White Sands Missile Test Range. It had been a very wet winter, and there was more water present than at any time since the early 1980s. Click on any photo to see a larger version.
